Forum: classic_tv Subject: List of surviving 1948 episodes of "Kraft Television Theatre"

Much of this info is sourced from the Library of Congress website....their cast lists are obviously incomplete.

"Captain Applejack" - aired 24 March 1948
Cast: Wilma Drake, Leonard Elliott, Peggy Sanford.

"No Way Out" - aired 17 March 1948
Cast: Eleanor Wilson, Muriel Hutchison, Paul Marlin.

"The Royal Family" - aired 5 May 1948
Cast: Ethel Owen, Bess Winburn, Hildy Parks.
The Paley Center for Media also helds a copy, and gives this description:
"One in this series of live dramas presented by Kraft. This is the story of the Cavendishes, a high-powered family of actors. The play focuses particularly on the three generations of women, each of whom has been or is tempted to leave the theatre for a more conventional life. Their dedication to the stage is in their blood and ultimately prevails. Includes commercials."
They list a longer cast list, but don't name what roles they play: Ethel Owen, Bess Winburn, Hildy Parks, Guy Spaull, John Seymour, Malcolm Beggs, Ty Perry, Nicholas Saunders, Robert Burr, Ed Reichart.
